And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!
—Lord Byron (George Gordon), from “She Walks in Beauty” (via the-final-sentence)
I love you with a love that is stronger than death, and if sin is the price of binding us together, life after life across the ages, then I will sin joyfully and without regret, so that it brings me back to you my beloved!
—Uther to Igraine~ Mists of Avalon (via kaetysrandommusings)
The magical Tintagel in Cornwall
In the combat between wisdom and feeling, wisdom never wins.
—John Steinbeck, The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights (via behindlashes)
